Forgotten Service

Sacrificial duty no appreciation

Law enforcement patrol cities

Stop crimes being committed

Proudly wearing uniforms women

No respect given law enforcement

Perform task no thank you given

for their sacrifice

Putting their life on the line for

Our safety risk their lives serve

People who fear

Them apprehend dangerous

Criminals who escape try to hide

Men, women help local citizens

Crossing guards ensuring children

Arrive to school safely, funeral

Processions, officers lead the way,

Firemen, women, run, face

Danger, burning buildings, rescue

Helpless victims trapped inside

First responders act quickly ensure

Medical treatment provided, sustain

Patients in moments of crises

Families wait praying they return home

Safely car chases end deadly, shoot outs,

Bullets flying, one inch to the right my

Wife crying at my bed side

Difficult task help those in need

Stop crimes being committed

Investigate heinous crimes scenes

Devastating blow all who serve

New wave of police violence

Law enforcement reputation tarnished.

    • Thank you for your support. I come from a military family so I understand the forgotten men and women who serve our country. My grand father served in World War II, my Uncle served in the United States Navy, and I have several cousins who served in the Army as well as the US Marine Corp.

    • In the Unite States there are thousands of homeless veterans. I believe that if you serve your country then your country should provide for your basic needs. When men and women return home they have financial, medical, and psychological needs. The last thing they should have to worry about is where they are going to spend the night. This is the tragedy that plagues United States veterans.
